During the company’s investors call, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has shared his belief that the next generation will represent a “significant opportunity.”
He “strongly believes the console market will receive a major boost in the coming years,” with such impact due to improved console connectivity which “will allow us to bring the social revolution to [players].”
With its projects catered toward both casual and core gamers, Guillemot explained that Ubisoft is “ideally positioned to reap benefits and grow profitability.”
Such success will come from Ubisoft’s support for Wii U, for which the publisher will have five casual titles and two core titles.
Known Wii U releases include Assassin’s Creed III, Avengers: Battle for Earth, Killer Freaks from Outer Space, Rayman Legends, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online, with Your Shape rumoured to hit the system. Well, that’s six!
Ubisoft previously stated that they aimed to be the “number one third-party on Wii U,” and set to “absolutely take advantage” of Nintendo’s digital strategy for the console.
